January Glossybox Wedding Edition (The BEST one ever!)

I personally always favour other beauty boxes in comparison to Glossybox. May be because it was one of the first ones in the UK to create the same US phenomenon, one just has more expectations for it as it's meant to set bench marks for other brands no? Of course, it's still a hit or a miss, more misses than hits but January's Special Edition Wedding Box was spectacular. I was left gobsmacked when I opened it as it looked outstandingly beautiful and so wedding-y. Their use of lace inspired tissue paper, the invitation card style leaflet and the abundant coral petals worked so much in their favour.

I got 6 items in the box which I was extremely pleased with as usual. Not just that, the items were super exciting and useful. Nothing. Went. Waste. Starting from the most exciting one, I now am a proud owner of a dinky Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector. As the rave reviews go, it is fabulous. You need one in your life if you haven't tried it out yet. Then we have NYX's One Night in Morocco Palette. Such gorgeous fun shades for Spring/Summer! I still can't believe there's a palette in this box. Seriously, which beauty box does that?

The chic beauty bird nail polish with a 'Yes I do' plastered on the front, the Model Co Lip gloss and Lipstick duo, Bella Pierre Mascara are all good quality, usable products from brands I hadn't heard of before, so overall they took me by a pleasant surprise. Oh and these would actually work quite well at creating a soft, romantic Spring/Summer Wedding make-up look.

Lastly, the skincare gem from Naobay and the coral bow stiletto attachments are perfect to finish off the bridal beauty box. Now all I need is a wedding to attend and I'm all set to prep and preen, hah!

The RRP of the box is £99 and it retails for £25 excluding postage. Check it out here: glossybox.co.uk/wedding-box

p.s. Will do a separate review on Naobay Moisturising & Peeling soon. Need to give it a good go first!
